Waiting for water

| Saturday, March 23, 2013, 9:00 p.m.

We would like to thank the New Kensington Water Authority and the Allegheny Township Board of Supervisors for considering to provide water service to White Cloud, Melwood and Smail roads.

Extending water lines to this area is a major necessity, since many of these families are in dire need of water. Some families with children can't bathe at home and do laundry at relatives' homes or laundromats. They also buy bottled water for drinking.

We appreciate the positive response from the mailed surveys. To those who responded negatively — or did not respond at all: Don't these people realize having city water will increase their property value? We ask anyone who has not returned the survey to do so immediately. Also, owners of vacant lots need to list them on their surveys.

We appreciate the cooperation between the water authority and the supervisors with the hope that this project will move forward.

TribLIVE commenting policy

You are solely responsible for your comments and by using TribLive.com you agree to our Terms of Service.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
